From the mouth of the importer (Savio Soares):
"Domaine Guillot-Broux is an amazing estate consisting of 16 hectares based in the Macon region, specifically in the little village of Cruzille. The estate boasts some of the oldest vineyards in the area, and have all been organically farmed since Emmaunel's grandfather planted them in the 1950's. The vines are planted in three separate appellations within the Macon; Cruzille, Grévilly & Chardonnay- most east-facing slopes on clay-limestone soil. Each vineyard has its own "terroir" – a concept encompassing soil and climate – which allows the estate to produce some 10 strikingly different wines with three grape varieties.
Winemaker Emmanuel Guillot-Broux makes quintessential high-quality Chardonnay, Pinot Noir & Gamay With vines producing between 30 & 55 hectoliters a hectare, the dense planting of the vines increases competition between the vines, making the fruit in each grape highly concentrated. Emmanuel's goal is to have as few grapes per vine naturally; this increases the concentration of flavors & the balance of the wine."
